Skylights can offer any room – even the garage – the benefit of natural light. Today's factory-built skylights and associated flashing systems are an excellent way to add light and venting to the home. There is no better time to add skylights to your home then when you’re replacing your roof.
An operable skylight can be used to vent the home. In more mild climates, a venting skylight is often used as a substitute for any mechanical air conditioning system. For venting purposes, such a skylight is ideally located on the north or east side of the home, away from the prevailing winds and rain pattern. Many manufactured skylight systems are available with insect screens, shading systems and various methods of operation, including remote control electrical devices.
